Im enjoying the game, but I must say that it is a little too easy...and the hints given in the game make it exremely easy...

Click to reveal..
when he needs to get the red light bulb...he says .."I saw some outside mrs bibas cafe"


that was just one example....I didnt think they needed to go to these extremes.....
This will probably be one of the first games i will not need a walkthrough for.....sigh...

Black Mirror 1 was a lot more challenging....which I enjoyed...this one seems like they are catering to a beginner adventure gamer

YOu are still in the first chapter right? Perhaps you will find it more challenging as you move along.

I too was wondering if this was going to be too easy, yet VERY enjoyable. Glad to hear that it gets harder, how stupid does that sound LOL!

I Just finished it...and it is certainly looking like a Black Mirror 3 on the way....

I enjoyed it.... But, at the same time, I felt somewhat let down. Don't get me wrong, it was a great game, but it did not nearly measure up to the first one. I LOVED that one, and kept it and I'm thinking I may play it again since I'm done with BM 2. This one is not a keeper for me. I think what disappointed me is that I had high hopes of actually being at Black Mirror Castle for the majority of the game, and instead was there at the castle for such a brief period. I really wanted to explore the same areas I looked at before, and it just looked so different now, and most of the places we could visit before were now off limits. (You know, like how in Dark Fall Lost Souls, we pretty much "revisited" the same place as the previous game, and it was the same, yet so very different)

So, if it were a stand alone game, I think I would have enjoyed it a lot more than I did as a sequel to my most favorite and beloved game that I've ever played in the past 11 years and some 155 games.

The story itself was great from start to finish. I, personally had issues with Darren's accent. It was a bit grating to me--kinda reminded me of someone trying to do an imitation of the Kennedys, but maybe that is just me.

Anyway, I'm still hoping there will be a BM 3, but I probably won't be quite as excited as I was for this one to come out.

Dmtomchick, I've never played the original - couldn't get it to run on Win 7, and have read that the download version has its own issues - and I definitely enjoyed the Black Mirror Castle section the most. It felt like there was a lot of interesting history there, and I wished more of the game had taken place in that location. How did the castle look different? What were the off-limit areas? I'm really curious now. smile

Also ending is not revealing one bit,I expected more info about the curse and Mordred.I hope the third game would give us more info than this one.

You're going to hate me! I just finished and I thought the story and the graphics were just fine and dandy! It got a bit tedious having to keep clicking on items to find out if they were useful. The sound was quite bad as others have pointed out. The puzzles were not really my cup of tea...sliders and lock picking Ouch! It was a very long game, so I felt I got more than my money's worth.....BUT I really struggled with the accents. Most of the locals in England sounded like they were raised by Dick Van Dyke and went to the "cor blimey guv" school of elocution. My biggest gripe is with Darren, the so called hero. I found him rude and completely objectionable... What a horse's backside (euphemism!)It filled me with deep joy every time

I killed him
. I know...I'm a grumpy old woman, but he definitely deserved to be horse whipped, fancy mocking visually impaired war veterans!

lol

To be fair to Darren, the visually impaired war veteran was pretty rude to him too. wink

Hopefully he'll be politer in BM3.
